BREAKING: Buhari ‘Drops’ Fashola, Set To Appoint Ambode, Other APC ‘Losers’, As New Ministers

There are strong indications that the immediate past Governors of Lagos, Adamawa, and Bauchi States, Akinwunmi Ambode, Mohammed Bindow, and Mohammed Abubakar, may be part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s next cabinet.
It was learnt that the Leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has resolved that all the APC Governors who lost their re-election bids, will “‘automatically’ become the Ministerial nominees for their States, making the former Minister Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola’s name, to be dropped from the list”.

The APC Organising Secretary, Adamawa State chapter, Ahmed Lawan, confirmed the development.
Lawan revealed that Bindow might be “automatically” nominated for the State, following the directive from the National Leadership of the party.
Recall, that Bindow lost his second-term bid to Ahmadu Fintiri, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a rerun.

Lawan added: “That is the directive from the National Leadership, and there is no nomination outside of Bindow. They never asked us to make any nomination. That is the arrangement; any State where the Governor lost, the Governor will be given a Ministerial slot.”
